Playing Catch-Up Once Again!
In other news...since I live in a small, rural area I always like to point out when I see neat things happening! A local store/Deli/Catering place recently added organic items to their shop! I was thrilled!
YEARS ago one of our local coffee shops was owned by a girl who had a near all veg menu. I think she offered 1 tuna and 1 chicken option but everything else was vegetarian. Unfortunately she sold the business and the coffee shop has since changed hands like 4 times. BUT...this past year she and her family are back and owning and operating it again! Here is the massive salad I got from them a while back!
In other shopping news - my parents are Piping Rock customers - and so am I! Recently I purchased these items! Hemp Seeds, Apple Cider Vinegar, Chlorella Tabs, and Pumpkin Seeds! Their prices are SO LOW!!! I couldn't help myself! Since this post is one big blab I will be mentioning the local businesses by name at the close of this post!
Not too long ago I found this individual oatmeal bowl and thought I would try it. It smelled wonderful and it tasted pretty darn good, too! I bought this one and another one that happened to be vegan! They are also Non-GMO, Gluten Free, etc.
I LOVE finding companies that are socially consensus and GIVING! This company gives one when they sell one! They even give you a sticker, too!
Below you can see a snapshot of what the finished product looked like! Nom, nom, nom!
All I did was add hot water. In 4 minutes of letting it sit I had a nice breakfast at work!
I have been finding a few new-to-me foods and brands and such and I have been SLACKING in the blogging department! I will certainly try and be better about that. I was able to find a new (to me) vegan pizza crust! It was Trader Joe's! I know I am late to the party - but still...
I have to say I was pretty impressed! I added just the right amount of spaghetti sauce and Daiya Moz this time! The secret to this one was the minced garlic and Wildtree seasonings I added! YUM!
So note to self...every time I go to a Trader Joe's I need to remember their Pizza Dough/Crusts! They are great!
I also saw another new one at our local Tops from the Brooklyn Brand I posted about not to long ago. They were mush smaller than the long rectangle ones I blogged about but I haven't tried them - I hope them keep them in stock so I can purchase them soon! I will let you know if I do!
So...as promised...these are the local businesses mentioned in this post....
* The Crossing in Warren, PA - check out their Facebook for more info! It's a neat place! LOTS happening!
* Kondak's Market & Catering in Clarendon, PA - check out the Facebook Page for the organics and other stuff!
* Arbor House Coffee Shop & Tea Room in Warren, PA - again Facebook is the way to go for info on them!
With Arbor House I would LOVE to get a VEGAN OPTIONS HERE Sticker over to them for their door!
